Rabbi Jacob Leeser's Holy Scriptures
I am more than a little thrilled. I recently downloaded Jacob Leeser’s translation through eSword. I frequently do comparisons between the many versions I have in the book of Isaiah. There are a few versions among very many I have come to count on for giving excellent translations. Recently, one of those has been that of Jacob Leeser. I decided to find out a little more about who he was and when he translated the Scriptures. Leeser’s translation may have been the first Jewish translation into English, a work he produced in 1853. I have now downloaded this version with all of its footnotes and thought I would share that with others who might be interested. Gregorio Billikopf, bielikov2 at yahoo.cl. The Internet has several very interesting articles on Jacob Leeser.
